BOSTON (AP) — The family of an 11-year-old Rhode Island girl has filed a lawsuit against a Massachusetts meat company that supplied meat to a youth camp where she became ill.
The lawsuit filed Friday in the Plymouth Superior Court claims that Lynn Santos of Lincoln, R.I., fell severely ill with an E. coli infection and was hospitalized for four days last month after eating contaminated beef supplied by South Shore Meats Inc.
It is the second lawsuit filed against the Brockton-based company after more than 30 people got sick at a Massachusetts youth camp.
Last month the company voluntarily recalled ground beef and other products after tests showed E. coli in leftover beef samples.
South Shore Meats did not immediately return phone messages Friday.
